Synagogues in Germany:

A Virtual Reconstruction





August 30, 2015 - December 27, 2015

The Technical University Darmstadt’s Architecture Department presents fifteen digitally recreated German synagogues that were destroyed during the Nazi era.  The project began in 1994, a year marked by the firebombing of the Lübeck synagogue and an escalation in hostility toward foreigners and antisemitism. Students and staff worked together to create the reconstructions, which call to mind the significance of synagogues, which were part of the rich architectural and cultural history of Germany before the Holocaust.
